Morning everyone I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas day and are still enjoying the festivities. Happy WOYWW thanks to Julia the fabulous host at The Stamping Ground sorry no craft creations to show instead I get to share my great Christmas presents with everyone today. I will find them all a perfect home at the weekend. I'm fortunate to be off work today and the festivities will be ongoing. I got lots of new crafty goodies, no time to use any of them just yet but hopefully will get the opportunity to spend a little time in the craft room at the weekend. 

                                  Wide view of desk 

My wonderful daughter put together the most amazing box; she filled a pretty storage box with all things imaginable from magazines to ribbons pens, heart pegs, punch, buttons, paper and pearls etc...It quite overwhelmed me as I wasn't expecting anything like this; she is such a thoughtful and fantastic daughter. Hubby was just as impressive and got me amongst other things  another copic set (whoopee)a beautiful notebook and new pen.Coincidently they both bought me the same ribbon pack and where a bit disappointed, I wasn't it’s a great set and means I have more to use I have been spoiled again; I do feel very fortunate. I hope everyone is well and get to spend time with family and friends. I will be visiting but sorry it probably won’t be until later in the week. Hopefully I will see you over at The Stamping Ground. I'm off now before hubby and daughter wake up.
